Campaign: Keep CCA out of Dallas

Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) is trying to move into Dallas. Let’s say no!

Corrections Corporation of America, or CCA, makes a huge profit off of locking up people and even entire immigrant families. Now, this deplorable company with a history of inhumane treatment and a plethora of human rights violations has set its sights on winning an 80 YEAR contract with Dallas County.

Several years ago, CCA was kicked out of Dallas after repeated violence and ignorance of human suffering occurred at Dawson State Jail (nicknamed Texas’ Worst Jail). However, a decision is set to be made this month that will determine whether or not CCA is allowed back in Dallas until at least the year 2095. …

He now uses his unique background and understanding of the inner workings of the system to network with policymakers and officials, and advocate for change within the justice system.

  1. What about GEO Corp?

    I was in a prison operated by GEO Corp under contract by CDCR. GEO is paid millions by CDCR, via-tax payers, yet they cut costs at every possibility. From serving subpar food, void of nutrients and high in preservatives (we were lucky to have one piece of fresh fruit per week), the densely populated ‘dorms’ (I don’t know how private prisons were exempt from the federal court’s overcrowding/reduction order) — to the over priced canteen, phone calls, and vending food in the visiting room. Private guards were paid pennies compared to the corrupt CDCR guards and CDCR staff. How do the fraudsters at CDCR (Jeffrey Beard, et al.) get away with their shenanigans?

  2. Q

    When the decision about CCA is made in Dallas I hope they keep one simple truth in mind;

    “a skunk can’t change it’s stripe.”
